Interesting set-up

I liked the food and the service was pretty good (though we got the wrong check and the payment had to be voided and rerun). The patio was a great spot to eat and I liked the idea of people being able to bring their dogs. I had the chicken piccatta which was darn good and the jalepeno appetizers... read more

Took a day trip to Hyde Park Tampa with a friend and was recommended to this place by a salesgirl in one of the shops. Thank you to her ! We were promptly seated out on the patio, ordered the Brie and fruit platter...delicious ! Then I had the blackened grouper sandwich with broccoli slaw...grouper was quite spicy, but was... More

On a day in Tampa running errands, we stopped at the Wine Exchange for lunch. Great food and service. We started with cocktails and a shrimp and scallop appetizer that was delicious. My husband loved his crab quiche with cesar salad. My salad topped with a crab cake and a skewer of grilled shrimp was perfect. The crab cake had... More

Nice buzz and good ambiance. Certainly not 5 star dining but our table of four all enjoyed their dinners. Service was uneven but we always managed to track down our server and track down what was forgotten. We find an OK bottle of wine (in an otherwise overpriced wine list).

The family that we visited the wine exchange with showed up at the restaurant about 15 minutes prior to us and were told we had a 30 minute wait for first available seating. We arrived and about an hour later we were finally seated, no apologies, nothing. Once we were finally seated the overall experience for the wait staff was... More

We just stopped in for drinks. They have a nice vibrant bar area. Only issue is that they cram way too many bar stools around the bar that makes it way too crowed and difficult to get off your stool for a bathroom break. Service was just okay. The bartender was professional and attentive but not outwardly friendly or inviting.... More

While visiting Hyde Park Village we ran into a wine and lunch stop. I have to say this is a must go to place if you are in the area. Many choices of wine but the food was fantastic. For sure not the normal burger and fries stop.

9 ladies went there to celebrate birthdays. The table was ready for us, the waiter was very nice, very patient for us as a group and he split our bills without tacking on an automatic tip for this being a group. We brought a cake with us and the staff provided the plates and forks without being asked. The food... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch during a "Christmas gift return" shopping day. We have dined here many times, all but once for lunch, and always on the patio where they have large heaters to keep the cold away! The appetizers and salads are very yummy and just right for an afternoon meal. Their wine list is a... More

Got seated immediately and waited on just as fast. Very friendly and everything they brought out was excellent. Definitely the right place to go.
